Do the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan ALL come on when the door is closed (without pressing any keys) , or just one or more of those?
Does it actually heat when you shut the door (without pressing any buttons)?
(You can put a cup of cold water in it for a minute to test it)
I would first suspect a shorted door switch.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
If it's not a door switch issue, I would say it has a stuck relay on the control circuit board.
We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.
Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .
